I was NOT going to do 18 points in the balance tree for 3% lousy haste. 3% is piddling. 18 points is huge! Not gonna do it…
A week later I broke down and did it.
I don’t know anything about math. Notice how there’s no math tag on this blog. All I know is that hot damn, it feels snappy. I don’t care about the theoretical HPS I can put out compared to my old build. I only care that I feel completely on top of and in control of my heals.
I then downloaded the woefully non-updated (but still happily working) gcd and I was in business (I like it better than the quartz gcd ticker!).
In case you’re curious, this is my slightly unorthodox build (with glyphs of rapid rejuv, nourish, and swiftmend). I heal mostly 10’s and get assigned tank healing and raid healing equally. This build has strong hot talents but sacrifices some utility for more raw power in direct nourish/regrowth healing (I miss living seed and revitalize).
